Our buddies at VICE Japan launched their YouTube channel last year and the videos have been amazing. A few weeks ago we featured Alone in the Zone, a doc about a guy who refuses to leave his farm near the Fukushima nuclear power plant. If you like animals and/or humanity in general, you'll love it. Give it a spin.

Here's an episode of their tattooing show, Life with Shisei, about Horiyoshi III, one of Japan's most beloved and enigmatic tattoo artists. He specializes in full-body tattoo suits, often says mysterious things, and has a weird history with the Yakuza. Enjoy!
